Enter the total acceleration and the mass into the calculator to convert the acceleration into force.

Acceleration to Force Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the force from acceleration.

F = MA

  • Where F is the force (N)
  • M is the mass (kg)
  • A is the acceleration (m/s^2)

How to Calculate Acceleration to Force?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate force from acceleration.

First, determine the mass. For this problem, this is determined to be 1.25kg.

Next, determine the acceleration. For this problem, the acceleration is calculated from the change in velocity over time. It is calculated to be 40 m/s^2.

Finally, calculate the force using the formula above:

F = MA

F = 1.25 * 40

F = 50 N
